N. Korea makes Winter Paralympics debut with rookie skiers

Slovakian skier Henrieta Farkasova won the first gold medal of the Pyeongchang Paralympics Saturday and the USA clinched a hat-trick of victories as sporting action got under away at Games marked by a rapid inter-Korean thaw. The 10-strong Team of three Paralympians and seven support staff become the latest additions to an expected global contingent of 670 Para athletes from 45 countries, gathering to compete across six Para sports.

Even recent host cities have faced new challenges in our changing climate. The United States is lagging behind in fifth place with only 16 medals, six of them being gold.

The nation will contest every sport except curling, with a total of 38 Japanese athletes competing in alpine skiing, cross country skiing, biathlon, para ice hockey and snowboarding.

India has a limited role in the Korean issue, but it might be appropriate for it to play its card through diplomatic channels, since it maintains embassies in both Koreas and commands respect from both.

In the U.S. alone, snow-based recreation generates $67 billion per year and supports over 900,000 jobs.

Owen Pick, who will make his Paralympic debut, lost his leg aged 18 while serving with the British Army in Afghanistan. The Olympic moments that persist in my mind long after the Olympic torch is extinguished have distinct context, emotion and significance.

Canadian ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have been skating together for 20 years.

In 2017, Pick claimed his first World Championship medal when he finished second in Canada. Guy Gosselin, a two-time Olympian (1988, 1992) with the U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team is head coach of the 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team.

The NHL used their 2014 sustainability reportto voice their "vested interest" in climate change, historically participating in the Paris Agreement conference discussions a year later. "There will be regular contact and co-operation, so we will not wait to really exploit the potential of this agreement", he said.

"It kind of shifts the attitudes of other people so that they can say, wow, the things that can be done, rather than look at what they can't do", Soulliere said.
